Machinefabriek's Stuip and Staar are two minimal drone performances captured at the Cross Street Chapel, Manchester (UK) and the Toneelschuurm, Haarlem (NL). Running just under an hour his processed guitar textures rise and fall, stretching their substance through etheral minimalism, slowly evolving epic heights, and sublime moments of symphony.

Ok.. now we agree on something
Now this time I'll agree with 000_000 as opposed to the Loscil release where I thought he was being absurd. In fact, I can't put it better than what he already stated below so I'll leave it at that. Great stuff!

I'm not sure why no one rated this yet. This is 2 live recordings a little under an hours run time. This is an amazing release. I love how the guitar drones slowly build from silence to barely audible to intense drones. Very minimalistic, but in my opinion this is an example of guitar drone at it's finest. This is one of the best netlabel release's hands down next to natural snow buidings 2010 double (free net label only) album centauri agent. A must have in your collection by this amazing artist!
